Canvas Printing
*  Turn your photos into a work of art, that you can proudly display on your wall.
*  Our Canvas Prints are professionally-produced on-site using Epson Ultrachrome archival
     quality materials.
*  All necessary artwork and optimisation is made by our expert staff, free of charge,
     to provide the best quality results.
*  After printing, a UV and scuff-resistant coating is applied, to preserve its archival
     qualities.
*  Our stretcher frames are carefully hand-finished with smooth rounded edges, to prevent
     cracking of the canvas print, which is often seen on cheap canvas products.
*  Finally, the prints are stretched and framed, ready to hang.
      (We can additionally make a timber surround frame for the completed work)
*  Depending on the layout and composition of the image, it is usually wrapped around
     the frame edges. But if wrapping is not suitable, a matching coloured and textured
     edge is created, at no extra cost. As well as standard sizes, we can also make custom
     sizes to suit any image size and shape.
*  We are proud to provide a superior quality and service, compared to mass-produced
     items from department stores and online services.

          and produce something more like a hand-drawn picture using primary colours.
    
  A Picturegraph is a unique set of your photos that are arranged in a special way to tell a story :-
     - your collection of photos is scanned and copied, then passed to a professional designer,
     - a preview draft of the design is forwarded to the customer for consultation and approval,

The Kingston Camera Centre is a specialist photo processing business. All printing is done to the highest quality.

Each image is individually checked, and the colours, contrast and brightness are adjusted manually by our expert staff to obtain the best possible prints.

We also offer different print sizes, to cater for the different shapes of photos produced by different cameras. No more missing heads or feet, like you get from the discounters.

Our staff are experienced and enthusiasts, and can help customers with the ordering process, and provide advice on taking photos.

Department stores, supermarkets and other discounters DO NOT provide any of these services, and rely on automatic machines to make their prints. Their results are often less than satisfactory, with incorrect colours, too dark or too light, or with parts of the image missing. That is a reason for their lower prices.

If quality is important to you, it is worth the little extra cost to have your photos printed by experts, and give you real value. Don’t confuse price with value; price is only what you pay, but value is what you actually get. Quality, whether good or bad, lasts forever.

 

Why do we charge more than the department stores and discounters? The prices we charge give us a fair and reasonable return on the investment in time and resources needed to provide our customers with a professional service. 

Certain big department stores have chosen digital printing as a “loss-leader”. This means they offer below-cost pricing on digital printing, purely to get customers into their stores to purchase more profitable items.

 It is illegal for a big business to use their market position and offer below-cost prices with the intention of forcing competitors out of business. A couple of large retailers appear to be engaging in this practice with their digital print pricing. They have been the subject of numerous complaints to the ACCC, and are currently being investigated. 

As a small business, we cannot possibly compete on price with these big businesses. Instead we aim to provide quality products and a FULL range of services.
